Student Fees

In order to complete registration, students must satisfy all tuition and fees through either direct payment or financial aid. Cash, certified or cashier's check, money order or credit card (MasterCard or Visa) is required for direct payment.

Certified/cashier's checks or money orders should be made payable to Shaw University. All payments sent by mail should include the student's name and social security number. PERSONAL CHECKS ARE NOT ACCEPTED.

All students are advised that the first payments received by the University will be applied to their accounts. Refunds will be processed only after obligations to the University have been satisfied.
